              You're Doing it Wrong is an outrageous tour through the centuries of bonkers and bad advice handed down and foisted upon women, told as only Kaz Cooke can - with humour and rage, intelligence and wit. A fresh, funny and furious look at the terrible advice women have been told for... centuries. Stroll with bestselling author Kaz Cooke through instructions on how to day-drink, wear a dress made of arsenic, pretend you're an idiot, have sex with a billionaire biker, curtsey, get properly harassed at work, exercise your nose, oppress other women and frighten your uterus. Using hundreds of amazing photos and illustrations, and the experiences of generations of women in her own family, You're Doing It Wrong shows how advice has been a weapon against us - and how by recognising it, we can ignore it. And totally cheer up. Warning- contains unbridled swearing about famous philosophers.

              'A lady dancer, a comedienne, and a comic singer. And the head of my own travelling troupe. The Ada Delroy Company, lately extinct.' Meet Ada. Losing her looks but not her touch, waving a morphia cocktail and holding forth from her bed, she's still got some silks, sequins, a scra...pbook, and the story of her life on the stage and the road. And what a life. 'I was a household name. I had a diamond pendant near as big as an emu egg off the Maharajah of What's-His-Name (it'll come to me). They named a racehorse after me, and a pigeon and a potato soup on an Orient steamship. Newspaper reporters around the globe knew me as the Premier Serpentine Dancer Of the World, the inventor of the form, if you don't count its actual inventor.' Ada was world famous when clairvoyants, cockatoo acts and strongmen toured the world and performed for everyone from royalty to riotous miners and larrikins. But underneath the rouge, the glorious glamour and cheeky wit was the reality of life for a girl who couldn't help being both fabulous and disreputable. Beautifully imagined and lovingly researched, Ada comes to life in genuine, vivid detail. Everyone in this novel was a real person and we've got the photos to prove it. As for the story, well, you'll want to hear Ada tell it.'Ada is absolutely compelling, complex and real! This Lady Thesp leaps off the page and stage with a brilliant turn of phrase and a fascinating life. Laugh out loud - and heartbreaking.' - Gina Riley

Miss Ada Delroy and her famous vaudeville troupe stormed five continents, enchanting royalty, miners and larrikins alike with her wit, illusions, and breathtaking dances. 'I ...had a diamond pendant near as big as an emu egg off the Maharajah of What's-His-Name. They named a racehorse after me, and a pigeon and a potato soup on an Orient steamship.' Under the costume made from 100 yards of billowing silk was a woman who couldn't help being both fabulous and disreputable.

Inspired by photos of real 1890s vaudevillians, Kaz Cooke brings to life a forgotten world of cunning clairvoyants and trained cockatoos; of fierce loyalties and mixed lollies; the glamour of the stage and the muck of the road. Funny, inventive and lovingly researched, Ada isthe story of an extraordinary woman in the toughest of times, with the courage to make herself the star. 'I'll tell you what I loved about being a theatrical. You're a custodian of magic, a purveyor of glamour, a repository of mystery. You're someone.' 'Ada is absolutely compelling, complex and real! This Lady Thesp leaps off the page and stage with a brilliant turn of phrase and a fascinating life. Laugh out loud - and heartbreaking.' - Gina Riley A former reporter and cartoonist, Kaz Cooke is the author of the bestselling books Up The Duff, Kidwrangling, Girl Stuff, Girl Stuff 8-12, Women's Stuff, and the children's picture books Wanda Linda Goes Berserk and The Terrible Underpants, which is not entirely autobiographical.
